Paris often hides treasures and in particular creators from all over the world who decide to live there incognito. This is the case of Takesada Matsutani, one of the greatest Japanese artists who has lived in Paname since 1966. The exhibition dedicated to him by the Centre Pompidou echoes an exceptional donation made by Matsutani to the Centre of twenty-two of his works. The exhibition shows 60 years of career, from his entry into the avant-garde movement Gutai to his formal abstraction. Fascinated by vinyl glue that creates air bubbles on the canvas, he develops large canvases of circular shapes in which the material becomes the expression of interior images.
